Training specialists Sean O’Neil and John Kulisek take an irreverent, entertaining approach to leadership advice. Despite some unnecessary coarse language, they often make a lot more sense than the pronouncements of lofty gurus. The authors offer seven “People Principles” and then profile 16 worker archetypes, such as the “Legend” and the “Burnout.” You’ll find specific strategies for training, monitoring and managing each type of person individually and in various team combinations. getAbstract heartily recommends this fun read to all managers who’ve ever wondered how to whip a ragtag team of “knuckleheads” into a smooth, functioning unit.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to manage a team of strong individuals,
- How to identify and work with various employee archetypes, and
- How to motivate your team members as individuals and as a group.
